WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. — A chaotic scene unfolded at Kennywood Saturday as a woman had to be rushed to a local hospital after having a medical emergency.
Police sources inside the park told Channel 11 there was a very serious medical emergency that led to this incident early in the afternoon.
Kennywood officials said park staff was alerted to a “non-ride related medical emergency” around 1:30 p.m. Medical service staff at the park, along with West Mifflin Police, responded to the Merry-Go-Round to help the woman.
A park employee told Channel 11 it was a hectic scene.
“I saw a bunch of people. They were all by the paramedics’ truck. Everyone was just yelling and screaming,” said Logan Long. “There was little kids ... parents yelling. I guess they went to tell everyone to back up.”
According to police sources, emergency responders had to perform CPR and used an AED machine on the victim -- who has not been identified -- before taking her to the hospital.
Her condition is unclear at this point, and police didn’t describe what caused the medical emergency.
